Donor Egg Resources

Egg Donor Recipient Support Group

This group is led by the donor egg coordinator and the first segment is a mini lecture explaining the process. The second second section is an open forum for patients to discuss their thoughts, concerns and opinions about being a a donor egg recipient.

The support group does not provide medical advice but rather emotional and personal support. It is intended to help patients decide if donor egg IVF is right for them. Couuples don't have to be RCC patients to attend. Children are not allowed.

RCC recommended licensed mental health professionals for discussing third party parenting issues like egg donation:

Egg Donor Agencies

Reproductive Care Center Donor Egg Bank

RCC has an in-house donor egg bank with the largest selection of frozen donor eggs in the intermountain region and a diverse selection of fresh donor eggs. RCC was one of the first fertility clinics in the region to freeze donor eggs and continues to be a leader in this process with excellent survival rates for thawing frozen donor eggs. When our patients are preparing for Donor Egg IVF cycles, we encourage them to look at our donor egg selection first.

In the case that a patient wishes to use an outside agency for donor eggs, we ask that they please notify the RCC Donor Egg Coordinator immediately to have their Donor Egg IVF contract reflect the intent to use an outside agency instead of the RCC Donor Egg Bank. Using an outside agency instead of RCC’s Donor Egg Bank may increase the overall cost of the cycle.

Recommended Outside Donor Egg Agencies

  • Fairfax EggBank- a subsidiary of the Genetics and IVF Institute along with Fairfax Cryobank, one of the nation’s largest sperm banks. Fairfax Cryobank was born out of a successful model for gamete (egg, sperm) cryopreservation (freezing) and shipping. Fairfax EggBank provides many options for choosing the right highly screened egg donor. Reproductive Care Center also provides frozen eggs to Fairfax Cryobank.
  • The Donor Solution- Egg donor agency. Managed by a nurse that once worked with Dr. Blauer.
